The Arkansas Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (ARK-LSAMP) is a collaborative alliance of eight Arkansas institutions, including the University of Arkansas at Monticello. The goal of this project is to increase the number of under-represented minority students who graduate in STEM disciplines and ultimately enter research careers. The ARK-LSAMP project is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
At UAM, we further the goals of ARK-LSAMP through:
Student scholarships and stipends
The ARK-LSAMP Summer Academy for incoming freshmen
Opportunities to engage in STEM research, with pay
Summer internships at research institutions
Specific instruction on research philosophy and methodology
A nurturing and engaging group atmosphere
Interested in becoming a part of the UAM ARK-LSAMP experience? Each ARK-LSAMP student participant must:
Have a high school GPA or 2.9 or higher
Have a composite ACT score of 19 or above
Complete all application requirements for admission to UAM
